FOod Safety At a glance...

Do you know? WHO estimates that food-borne diseases cause 600 million illnesses annually and 420,000 deaths worldwide. This means approximately one in 10 people get ill from eating or drinking something every year!

In general, foodborne illnesses are infectious or toxic in nature and caused by bacteria, viruses, or chemical substances entering the body from contaminated food. Chemical contamination can cause acute poisoning or long-term diseases, such as cancer. A few days of diarrhea or vomiting that usually accompany food poisoning may seem inconsequential. But don’t underestimate them, some foodborne illnesses can even lead to long-term disability and death!
